Vol. Ill FALLS CITY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY , JULY 20 , 1906. Whole No. 132
Floater Found.
Starting on a little fishing trip
last Friday , on the northwest
part of the Bilby ranch , Win.
Ehrlich was attracted to the
bank of the Missouri river by the
peculiar actions and whines of
his dog. Arriving close to the
water's edge , he found the re
mains of a man. He immediately
went to Fargo and telephoned to
coroner , Dr. Rcncker , who ac
companied by Sheriff Fcnton ,
drove to the scene at once.
A jury was impanelled and the
verdict given was "cause of death
unknown. "
Dogs had torn the head into
pieces , one jaw bone being in one
place and the other in another.
The evidence at hand would
show that the body had been in
the water for some six or seven
months , there being no ilesh
whatever on the bones. The
skeleton was clad in a heavy suit ,
had on a dark blue woolen shirt ,
top coat and a duck coat ; also a
pair of overalls on over the heavy
suit. Six dollars and fifty-two
cents was found in the pockets ,
but aside from a silver watch ,
there was no evidence to serve as
a means of identification. It had
former ! } ' been a very good watch
but was ruined by the water.
Following is given a descrip
tion of the watch hoping that
some clew will be gained concern
ing the identity of its wearer.
The private number was 1085.
The case was a crown silverode
